Get things done! The award-winning Things app helps you plan your day, manage your projects, and make real progress toward your goals.
Best of all, it’s easy to use. Within the hour, you’ll have everything off your mind and neatly organized—from routine tasks to your biggest life goals—and you can start focusing on what matters today.
“Things offers the best combination of design and functionality of any app we tested, with nearly all the features of other power user applications and a delightful interface that never gets in the way of your work.”
—Wirecutter, The New York Times
• Your To-Dos
Your basic building block is the almighty To-Do—each a small step toward a great accomplishment. You can add notes, tag it, schedule it, and break it down into smaller steps.
• Your Projects
Create a Project for any big goal, then add the to-dos to reach it. Use headings to structure your list as you outline your plan. There’s also a place to jot down your notes, and a deadline to keep you on schedule.
• Your Areas
Create an Area for each sphere of your life, such as Work, Family, Finance, and so on. This keeps everything neatly organized, and helps you see the big picture as you set your plans in motion.
• Your Plan
Everything on your schedule is neatly laid out in the Today and Upcoming lists, which show your to-dos and calendar events. Each morning, see what you planned for Today and decide what you want to do. The rest is down to you :)

MADE FOR IPHONE
Things is tailored to the iPhone with deep system integrations as well. A great example is the Share extension, which allows you to create to-dos with content from other apps, such as a link to a website you want to get back to.
You can also enjoy a beautiful dark mode at sunset, connect your calendars, add widgets to your home screen, create to-dos via Siri, import from Reminders—Things can do it all! There’s even Shortcuts integration if you want to automate your workflows.
MADE FOR APPLE WATCH
Things comes with a great app for Apple Watch. Just raise your wrist to glance at your Today list, mark to-dos complete as you go, and dictate new ones on the fly—all synced instantly with your iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
Made in Stuttgart, with two Apple Design Awards to its name, Things is a fine example of German engineering: designed not only to look fantastic, but to be perfectly functional as well. Every detail is thoughtfully considered, then polished to perfection.
“It’s like the unicorn of productivity tools: deep enough for serious work, surprisingly easy to use, and gorgeous enough to enjoy staring at.”

THINGS 3.14 - *Remarkable* Notes
This update is all about the *notes* inside your to-dos – and it’s a big one! Four great new features go hand in hand to elevate the note-taking experience to a whole new level:
1. Bullet Lists
2. Markdown (!)
3. Find in Text
4. Things Cloud “Fractus”
We can’t wait for you to try it out – we think you’re going to love it!
Things now has support for writing great-looking bullet lists in your notes, and it couldn’t be easier to use. Simply type “-” followed by some text. You can also use other bullet characters like *, +, or •
As you’d expect, text that wraps to a new line is neatly indented for better readability. Editing is smart, too. When you hit Return, a new bullet is inserted. Return again escapes the list. And copy/paste automatically removes accidental “double bullets”.
You can also nest lists! Simply insert a few spaces before bullets to indent them, or use our new keyboard shortcuts: Cmd-[ and Cmd-]
As many of you requested, you can now use Markdown to structure and style your notes!
If you already know Markdown, go ahead and try it out. Things detects a wide range of commonly-used syntax and renders it in a unique blend of proportional and fixed-width fonts. It looks and feels great!
If you don’t know Markdown, here’s how it works. To emphasize a word, surround it with asterisks, like so: *emphasized*. Things will detect this and render the word in italics. If you remove the asterisks, it goes back to normal again. Here are a few more examples:
• Use two asterisks to make text **bold**.
• Use colons to ::highlight:: text.
• Insert “#” at the beginning of a line to make a heading (# My Heading).
So your notes are still plain text, like before. There are just some special characters that make the text appear in a different style. It’s a bit quirky, yes, but after using it for a while we think you’ll enjoy how easy it is to style text while you write. Give it a try!
As you’d expect, we’ve added some great keyboard shortcuts on both Mac and iPad. On iOS, you can also double-tap a word to select it, then tap “Aa” and choose a style from the popover.
To learn more, check out the Markdown Guide on our website.
FIND TEXT IN NOTES
Things already had great full-text search across all your lists, but now you can find text just within the current note. Try it out: open a to-do, tap “•••” then “Find in Text”. There’s also a shortcut: Shift-Cmd-F.
THINGS CLOUD “FRACTUS”
Many of you are already taking long notes in Things and there’s no doubt this update will encourage this even more. We wanted to make sure Things Cloud is up to the task.
Introducing Things Cloud “Fractus” – our smart new method for syncing notes. Before, even a tiny change would require the *entire* note to be synced again across all your devices. But now, only the small edits themselves are transferred. This drastically improves the speed and efficiency of the sync and allows for smarter resolution of conflicts.
There’s nothing you need to do to set this up – we’ve already turned it on.
Ratings and Reviews
Everyone needs a task manager—and Things is adaptable enough for anyone. This Apple Design Award winner is crisp and lightweight, featuring a simple but effective interface. The ever-present Magic Plus button makes it easy to add to-dos from anywhere in the app, and organizing items is as simple as dragging them where you want them. It’s like the unicorn of productivity tools: deep enough for serious work, surprisingly easy to use, and gorgeous enough to enjoy staring at.
The Essential To Do App
Instead of boosting my productivity, my previous task management app had so many customization options that it actually ate away at my time. It became a procrastination tool. I could spend an hour entering dates, setting up filters, and customizing views only to realize at the end of that time that I hadn’t actually gotten anything done. In contrast, Things 3 is wonderfully simple and clarifying. It’s as powerful as my previous app, but it strips out all the distractions and the fussiness, leaving pure, easy-to-access essentials: tagging, scheduling & project organizing. The scheduling feature has been the real game changer for me. The app tracks due dates (if you have them) but—more importantly— you can also add a schedule date for each task. The interface makes it very easy to add, move, & view tasks in the schedule (while keeping due dates fixed). So you can plan your time (and easily rearrange that plan as needed). If you’re a GTD person, you can still use that methodology with Things 3 projects & tags. But I find that I do better by adding the accountability of a scheduled list of things that I want to get done on a particular day or in a particular week. Things 3 helps me organize and manage that schedule better than anything else I’ve found. And it gives me the powerhouse organization tool I need without sucking me down a rabbit hole of customization options.
It’s worth it!
I have tried numerous apps to try to stay on top of what I need to do, reoccurring tasks, upcoming events, and my accomplishments each day. I’ve used free apps, one-time fee apps, and subscription based apps. I end up either deleting them immediately, or I eventually stop using them due to how inefficient they are, or I end up with several apps to cover all my needs. I tried just using a regular physical journal, which I do recommend and I still use; but it doesn’t help me with reoccurring tasks or my incredibly long list of things I need to do for a specific category. An example would be, I have a special needs child who needs specialized schooling and assistance with every day tasks. Getting him the help he needs is covered by various government services but requires numerous steps on my part to get each need of his covered. It would require me to have a large desk planner to have something like this (which is basically a project but a one person, non paid project) planned out on a physical planner; but this app eliminates that necessity. I’m still new to this app, and I’m certain that I’m not using it to its extent, but as of now, it has been the best to-do app I’ve come across; paid or free! I have my fingers crossed that I’ll be able to delete some of my other apps and replace them with Things3!
